Hello, February!

Today I have a special treat for you! You like treats, right? Last year in November or so, I decided that I would design a 2012 calendar for myself — I wanted to add simple word prompts that would spark my creativity throughout the whole of 2012. I made a giant list of words that suggested writing prompts, color schemes, and techniques to try on my art journal pages. I wrote all of the prompts onto pieces of paper and drew them out of a bag in order to assign them to every weekday of the year. Once I had my prompts established, I proceeded to set up my backgrounds for each month by printing blank girds and glueing them to a collage background. A few swipes of pretty paint later and I was ready to scan them in to add the dates and digital images. It was a lot of work, but boy do I love the results!

I hope you do, too, because today I have a free download for you of a February prompt calendar that you can print out and hang on your wall for inspiration or use as a desktop background for the month.

Download the pdf version and/or jpg version. (The PDF is higher quality for printing; the JPG is a smaller file.

If you like the calendar and want to buy the full year, it’s available here. (Use the coupon code: ARTDATE to save 25%!)

Or, if you aren’t already a member of Weekly Art Date, you get the full year calendar for free when you sign up for the full year ($45 for 40 weeks of weekly downloadable art journal videos and inspiration!) {Sorry, the coupon can’t be applied for the class!} [Skip etsy and go straight to paypal to sign up]
